A 43- year- old man was apprehended for allegedly defiling his 3- year- old daughter while his wife was in the hospital to deliver their second child.
The man who was identifed as Mr Ikechukwu Ekenta, from Ikeduru- Ogwah, Mbaitolu Local Government Area of Imo state, was accused of sleeping with his daughter, Kamsiyochukwu Ekenta on 28th of April 2020, when her mother went to put to bed.
The case which caused serious reactions in the media made some people give their opinion on what should be done to this man.
While speaking with journalists about the issue the, little Kamsimyochukwu, who is 3 years and 10 months old, said her daddy put his ” komkom” (inside her private part while she was sleeping, and she had to wakeup because of the pains.
Speaking at the Professor Dora Akunyili Women Development Center, Awka, the man Mr Ikechukwu Ekenta said he was sent by an unknown spirit to commit the act.
He added that anytime some spirits possesses him, he will start behaving abnormally. He said that on that good day, he used his finger to defile the girl the mood came upon him again
The wife of the alleged rapist, Mrs Uzoamaka Ekenta, while talking about the incident express how she found out, said that on her return from the hospital, she noticed her child was behaving like she was in pain while bathing her. She questioned the girl and she accused her dad of defiling her.
The case was very shocking and sad that a father can do such to the daughter.
My opinion to this man is that he should be sentenced to death for penetrating such a little girl, defiling of teenage girls has a serious effect on the child with this anyone caught should be sentenced to death.
Meanwhile the accused father is in the police custody awaiting trial.
